Yes...weird how even tho' it's about keith, he always ends up being COMPARED to Brent! Guilty as charged, I guess ;-)

I'm on board with Grendel here. It's also weird that my touring days were the 80's, and I loved it and Brent was the man, but I actually prefer the 73-75 GD stuff with Keith. He (and they at that time) was so amazing and fluid. I completely agree about the early Brent sounds too. The 83 stuff and the 79 sound when he came in - so cool! I wish he kept more of that sound and groove, but as other posters have mentioned, it was the direction the band as a whole was exploring that took things the way they went. What he was doing in 79, to me, was perhaps my favorite from him. Really neat stuff all around.
